, and government accountants now list climate change as a threat to our fiscal stability. now, today, as we enter the passover and easter season and as catholics the world over celebrate the selection of a new pope, we turn to voices of faith. they, too, call upon us. they call upon us to heed the moral imperatives of protecting creation and seeking justice for all people. they call upon us to reflect on our faith, on our relationship to our world and each other and on our responsibility to future generations. and they call upon us as president obama reminded us in his inaugural address to preserve our planet commanded to our care by god. i lay no claim to religious authority, but i must believe this -- something that harms others, something that disturbs god's creation, something that stands on lies and greed, protecting that must not be consistent with god's will. in his 2010 world day of peace message entitled "if you want to cultivate peace, protect creation," pope benedict xvi called upon the faithful, and i quote -- "to protect the environment and to safeguard natural resources and the clim

republican budget does, mr. president, it's focused on growing the economy, not growing the government. what the democrat budget here before the senate this evening does is it grows the government, not the economy. in fact, if you look at what the analysis that's been done, it's expected that the democrat budget would cost us 850,000 and reduce take-home pay for middle-class families by $1,500. the house republican budget takes serious the challenges facing this country, takes the steps that are necessary to save and protect medicare for future generations of americans, something that this budget, the senate democrat budget, does not do. i urge my colleagues to support this budget. it's a serious one that balances the budget in 10 years and puts our economy back in a growing mode and our fiscal house back in order. i yield the floor. omrs. murray budget raise: yawz. the presiding officer: is there a sufficient second? there appears to be. the clerk will call the roll. vote: the presiding officer: are there any senators in the chamber who wish to vote or to change a vote? if not, on this vote
. but in all seriousness let's agree that the challenges in government that will always exist seem to be more difficult to surmount today than they were a decade ago and i'm wondering if you can talk about what has change add whand can reverse those trend. >> that is my story and i'm sticking to it that things were perfect. there were a lot of things. we dealt with a series of crisis. we had an impeachment crisis. we had a 9/11 crisis. we had an an thrax attack in my office. when you have crisis like that it brings people together. i think partly it was the circumstances and the environment we had to confront. devissive had very times. the schedule has changed a lot. we would work longer weeks and people were there for a longer period of time. the venues for communication were much more readily at hand. we had -- we used to have two lunch tables that are just for senators and you'd is it family style and people would have lunch together. and for whatever reason that lunchroom was closed. we used to have social events where we get together and one was around our spouses and we'd salute or spo
responsibility for security to the afghan government. chief washington correspondent james rosen joins me live now. james, bring us up to date. >> reporter: good morning. every leader between u.s. leaders and hamid karzai seems to be fraught with tension and this one is no different. aides say secretary kerry's talks will not dwell on the karzai's allegations that the u.s. and taliban are conspiring to weaken the afghan nation. rather they will discuss security concerns as the u.s. and nato mission in afghanistan winds down over the next 29 months and the need for transparency and fairness in the upcoming elections. for the first time in 12 years hamid karzai will not appear on the ballot. over the weekend jon mentioned secretary kerry met with another leader that. iraqi's leader, nouriel malaki. he wants iran to stop using iraqi airspace to deliver foreign fighters to the fighters and the regime in damascus. >> may made it clear members of congress and people in america are increasingly watching what iraq is doing and wondering how it is that a partner in the efforts for democracy and a partn
that you have to remember that the prime minister of israel just formed a very fragile coalition government, and so the president, it's very shaky ground in israel, as well, in terms of his approval among israeli jews. many of them are sort of neutral about president obama. they don't dislike him but they don't adore him. and so for each man there is a big reason to show that they are in good for the other guy, to get some credit here in israel. and so, yes, there is good reason for each to show that all those old wounds are well on their way toward healing. nobody here is going to pretent that they don't have troubles. but they are showing that they can get along. >> keep looking for those smiles. thanks to jessica yellin in tel aviv this morning. we will come back to you over the course of the morning. this went from what was going to be a symbolic visit to one where all of a sudden there are urgent matters to discuss with the specter of chemical weapons possibly being used in syria. we want to go to our senior international correspondent ivan watson in amman, jordan, this morning. and iv
they discussed, but there are lots of things on the plate of the new pope who has to deal with governance within the vatican, its finances, all the challenges facing the church. it was a historic first. it's never been seen before that two popes both dressed in white, prayed together, ate together and spent quality time together. >> oh my goodness, so what maybe next for pope benedict? or not pope benedict, for pope francis. >> reporter: the pope emeritus, looking at the pictures, he looks quite frail. he said he wants to be hidden from the world. we understand that some time within the next month, he'll be moving to a converted monastery on the grounds of the vatican, but he's a studious man. he's not interested in having an active public life. he's made that quite clear. so our understanding is it will be sort of a life of contemplation, study and writing in the back gardens of the vatican. not a bad place to spend your retirement. >> not bad at all. ben wedeman, thanks so much from rome. >>> earlier today the u.s. senate passed its version of the federal budget. it's mostly symbolic since it
are faced with a government reaching into their personal bank accounts to pay its bills. this is not like a tax. it's a smash and grab. the government runs the banks, so when they're failing and need money, they could keep the deposits that the citizens have inside their accounts. cyprus needs to come up with 7 1/2 billion dollars on its on in order to get the european unions to loan it the rest of the money to keep the country running. it's like matching funds in a highway and in belgium holding last minute talks with european leaders. they better talk quickly because the european bank has been giving emergency cash to cyprus to keep the banks there afloat. that cash stops tomorrow if there's no deal in the works. some pictures now from earlier. citizens filling the streets in panics and their businesses hurting from no cash flow and the atm's shut down. and they're worried the government will take their money. greg palkot is in cyprus and brenda buttner in the studio. let's go to graeg. what's the latest for cyprus. >> reporter: harris, it looks like it's going to be an all-nighter. an
president, to keep this government open. now, they say they want to keep the government open. they don't want a shutdown. so why not get that vote done with? senator mikulski has led in a beautiful way with senator shelby -- a very bipartisan fashion. let's vote on that bill, keep the government open, as senator mikulski said, "show the country we can work together," and get to the one thing the republicans have been saying, not for months but for years, that the democrats have not done a budget. now, the truth is, instead of doing a budget, we did the budget control act. so of course we distinguis did . as a matter of fact, the budget control act was actually, in many ways, more specific than a budget. but set that aside, they went out on the campaign trail, they attacked democrats, "where's your budget? where's your budget?" well, guess what? under the able leadership of my friend from washington, senator murray, there is a budget, and it is well-done. and it has strong deficit reduction and strong investments. it's balanced in a way that the ryan plan is not. it saves medicare where
on in iraq now is the shia plurality, dominating a government and trying to dominate the kurds and the sunnis. i think it is more a continuing ethnic struggle where iraq's neighbors wish them no good. the iranians supporting the shia, the sunni arabs supporting anb anbar provinces. >> the "washington post" describeding him as neither the failed state, nor the model democracy some had wanted. what is the state of the government right now from your perspective there? >> reporter: well, there is a few different tests. on one hand, it is a country that hasn't completely grappled with democracy. it hasn't struggled in materials of creating more political freedom but there is no doubt democracy has not taken route across the country. the central government still struggles in the northern part of the country under kurdish control. it is a loose amalf. the government is rife with political corruption. there is indeed as we just heard, sectarian tension among political parties. still a lot of missing people in iraq. so by some estimates, although there is more political freedom and freedom of expressi

than the government takes in. continue os soned -- to spend more money than washington takes in, and the people of this great country understand we can't continue going down this road over and over and over. a couple of points that mr. scott made regarding the republican budget which is the budget that is the base budget here that we're bringing to the floor that in fact does get to balance in a responsible way. it saves an strengthens and secures medicare as opposed to the misinformation that was provided by the other side. it makes certain that states have the kind of flexibility so they're able to provide the highest quality of health care to their medicaid population. it doesn't, as a matter of fact, address in a specific way the issue of social security because it provides for a reserve fund so that's able to be addressed in a more specific way through the committee structure which is also the important thing to recognize about the issue of tacks. our friends on the other side are specific about what they accuse us of regarding tax bus as you know, mr. chairman, it's the wa

it has gotten. is the pathetic state of our federal government. back in washington john boehner didn't seem too concerned about the president's slip of the tongue. >> so much for the charm offensive. as i like to say you only tease the ones you love. i would rather be heckeled an ignored. >> michael: wait, he is not teasing you because he loves you. the president is genuinely glad that you are thousands of miles away, and if you want to know why take a look at congress. today republicans did what they always do when faced with an easy decision they made a big fuss threatened to shut the whole thing down and then gave in. they also planned to reintroduce paul ryan's draconian service-slashing budget the same exacting budget that went nowhere last session. but if that's how they want to play, democrats are more than happy to jump in the ring with them. the dccc is always hinting how it will use ryan's budget against republican candidates in 2014 just like they did in 2012. today they released this video. >> she joined mitt romney in supporting paul ryan's budget
into the possible use of chemical weapons in syria. president bashar al assad and his government accusing opposition of using them in aleppo. the opposition pointing its collective finger at the syrian government. as both sides continue to squabble, u.s. officials are trying to get proof that chemical weapons were used at all. pentagon correspondent barbara starr is following all these developments for us. she is joining us live. where are we right now on this, barbara? >> good morning, zoraida. u.s. intelligence community is conducting its own investigation as to what happened there and we have new details. as more pictures emerged of hospitalized syrians, cnn has learned u.s. intelligence agencies are in a massive around-the-clock effort to determine if these people were attacked by chemical weapons. so far, u.s. officials say there is no corroboration. >> so far, we have no evidence to substantiate the reports that chemical weapons were used. >> reporter: in a classified briefing to congress, intelligence officials said it's not clear what happened. but cnn has learned new details about how the c
oppressive and demonizing to african-americans and women that the federal government should supersede that. >> so nancy, what states and voters can do, voters have turned back amendments every time they have an opportunity to. >> well, sure. they have. but we have to think about in north dakota the six-week ban is not put to the voters. that's something the north dakota legislature put there and is on the the desk. and this is what the supreme court said looking at the issue. these decisions about your most personal life, these decisions about treated dignity in making, this is not for the same of north dakota or mississippi to vote away. i mean, the court said it is the promise of our constitutional that there's an area of life that the government may not enter. and decision about women's body and held and the numbers facing children are part of the decision. sfl and this always feels shocking to me when i hear it from republicans. you want the state out. so why do you suddenly want it in? wii going to stay on this top iblg when we get back. after the break we'll add a couple more voices
the relationship between the members of this troika and whether this body can continue to govern these bailouts going forward. so it includes the imf led by christine legarde, ollie rehn and the relationship between the banks. the relationships looked extremely tense last night, but on their way out, they tried to assure us that there is actually no problem. here is what christine legarde had to say about it. >> would you tell us about the future of the troika with regards to future bailout? >> the troika is doing fine. actually, there are two of us. we're doing okay. thank you very much. >> so, you know, an attempt to look friendly, that was two out of the three representatives. we didn't see mario draghi, although he was present for these deliberations. so at a time when the eurozone has an economy that's extremely weak, where we've just learned that if anything the downturn is accelerating, that the austerity measures haven't succeeded in turning this country around and that there still is no uniform way here of dealing with the failure of these banks or frankly with sovereign bailouts going
government at home and abroad. >> rand paul wants to accomplish the departments of education and congress and epa. >> small detail. >> and the federal reserve and abolish the income tax. the second amendment which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic se
with stimulus money. the government built it and now the government is shutting it down. in some of these cases it's almost ludicrous that you have federal budget fights that are making these decisions and not safety, air safety or national priority for how we're going to grow our aviation in this country. >> the faa's priority is to protect the consumer, the flying public. they have airports, they created brand new control towers and requires people behind control towers to make sure that everything happens correctly and airplanes land correctly and sequenced correctly. you can have the best tsa in the world to check you for security, what good is any of that if there's not a person in the control tower to make sure that everybody who takes off and lands at an airport does so in a safe and orderly fashion. there's no safety factor involved here. >> let me tell you about a new rule from the tsa allowing knives and other dangerous items onboard. how safe is the public and flight crews in that case. you're a former air marshal. what do you think about people being able to -- so what if the blade
the government. even to keep guns out of the hands of criminals by a thorough background check. so we're going to face opposition, no question about it, but we're determined and resolute. >> which ones of these amendments that you talk about, an assault weapons man amendment, amendment dealing with the mental health issues, which realistically has a chance of passing? >> they all have a chance of passing, and we're not surrendering or abandoning any of them. the bill will include a ban on illegal trafficking and straw purchasing, which is critical to law enforcement people. they'll tell you police on the streets or state police, our law enforcement at the federal level, illegal trafficking is a scourge. and, of course, background checks are absolutely critical because right now the law prohibits sales to convicted criminals, drug addicts, seriously mentally ill and domestic abusers but can't enforce that provision if private sales are exempted. so close that loophole. and then, of course, school safety will be in the bill as well. and the amendment on the floor will be on assault weapons. clea
good to that and does the government have a legitimate interest in protecting and strengthening? that's the issue. >> i was talking to the television and kept saying not true. as he was saying that. not true, not true. if you look at the studies. studies show the exact opposite of what ralph reid was saying. what do you say that? >> you know, i have no issue with ralph reed. i have to tell you i found that is painful. it pained me he was saying those things while sitting next to our cnn colleague, hillary rosen, who is a gay mother devoted to her two children. i don't think any of us can lay judgment on the type of mother little hillary rosen or any the other parents are. we have to understand as society, that sexuality, is not equivalent to morality. and there can be bad parents that are heterosexual. there can be bad parents homosexual. that's not because of sexuality. it is because they are a good parent or bad parent. and i think that it is cruel to tell a child of a loving gay couple that they are less functional and less normal and that their parents less fit to be parents. let'
standing by in beirut, lebanon. the rebels say the government killed 25 people with a chemical weapon. help us out here. who is telling the truth? >> reporter: it still isn't really clear, jake. we don't have confirmation chemical weapons were used but there are two separate incidents. one in a city in the north, aleppo, in which the regime says it was hit by a chemical weapon fired by rebels and the russian government backing that up one activist saying this seems to have landed between rebel and regime lines and may have hit civilians in the regime area and regime troops, too. another instance near damascus to the east in which rebels do appear to have been hit by some kind of suffocating gas. not clear what it was but certainly the logic test suggests rebels aren't going to be aim agate themselves with these weapons and we know the regime has a large stockpile. >> is there a faction within the opposition that cob obtain chemical weapons? is it even possible? >> reporter: that's always been the real fear as we heard about radicalization, the fractious nature of the rebel movement. to be h
it likely to be shut down by who else? the federal government. frederick is one of 238 towers at small and medium airports the faa may close because of forced spending cuts. >> we are awarded the money and, you know, ten months later they say you don't need a tower here. so it's the world of mixed messages. >> reporter: in florida the government also givette and takette away, 1.8 million in stimulus money went to construct this new tower at oprah locka. $1 million for this tower in st. petersberg. now all on the chopping block. >> it looks to be -- >> this navy veteran has been clearing pilots for takeoff and landing for the past 11 years. it's all she knows. >> scary because i'm going to have to figure out something else to do for an income. it means i'm going on unemployment and that's the only income i'll have for me and my daughter. >> reporter: while airports will remain open, she says closing towers affects safety. >> there's going to be close calls, there's going to be midairs, there's going to be a runway accident. >> some pilots agree. >> tragically something is going to happe
no idea what the federal government is going to do. if they step in with an injunction, we won't implement based on the dates in 502, but i don't see that will stop us in putting together the framework. >> financial terms of the deal still are being negotiated, but it is budgeted at $100,000 a year. there was one final question for the weed wardens >> how many of you currently consume cannabis. >> clearly i don't think that's relevant to the project. all of our consultants are law abiding citizens. >> that was casey wyan reporting. trying to make sure the pot industry stays within legal limits isn't going to be an easy job. you just heard that. let's bring in the bo tech analysis corporation chief and ucla professor mark kleinman joining us. he is the author of "marijuana legalization, what everyone needs to know." your company has a huge task ahead. how does the industry get built from scratch so to speak? what do you advise? how do you advise as to what is going to unfold since it is kind of uncharted territory. >> it is indeed uncharted territory, and the voters wrote a fairly specific

their vision for how you should fund the government. we're still waiting on president obama to release his own budget which will have potentially a competing vision. and adam is exactly right, it's just a matter of inches going forward and the big dernifferen on whether you want to boost investments over the long term or whether it's about cutting spending, these are big questions that lawmakers are facing. i would get in a room with a handful of guys, all men, and they would try to come to table with a deal. that's not how it works in washington. >> should it be at least a starting point? >> well, i think that they usually come together when they actually really need to to prevent something disastrous from happening to the budget or the economy. this is something that will come up again with the debt ceiling fight this summer. but if you look at what the senate just passed, this is as christina said, they want to raise taxes. >> guys, let's switch to gun control here. christina, there's mention of the push for the gun control measures. a new gun control law was signed into law described as to
